TIME FOR THE LAKERS TO PUSH THE PANIC BUTTON
By Ron Campbell 12/12/2012
It is time to push the panic button on the Lakers season. They suck, they stink and they are terrible. They play no defense, give up a ton of points and have no continuity on the offensive end of the court. more...

4TH ANNUAL HOOPSFORUM NFL SEASON PREVIEW
By Marlon Benjamin 9/3/2012
It is THAT time of year again. The NFL is ready to kick off the 2012-13 season on Wednesday night (Giants vs. Cowboys) and there are (by my count anyway) at least 7 teams who have a REALISTIC shot to win the Vince Lombardi trophy on Feb 3rd. In the last 10 years the NFL has seen 6 different teams win titles (Pats, Steelers, Giants, Colts, Saints & Packers) 3 AFC teams & 3 NFC teams. With the exception of the Colts each more...

KEYS TO THE SHIP
By Ronald Menard 6/12/2012

NBA PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS
By Marlon Benjamin 4/27/2012
When the East is in the house, DANGER! Well not really. The Heat, the Bulls and the Celtics (with an outside chance) are the only teams that can win the Eastern Conference. The Knicks are trending up, but without emerging point guard Jeremy Lin I cannot take the Knicksmore...

Last week Bill Simmons of Grantland blasted Rajon Rondo on his podcast and in an article. He basically said Rondo needs to be traded. Frankly everyone has been blaming Rondo for the Celtics struggles. Tonight Rondo had 35 points and Donnie Marshall stated that Rondo was going for self.more...

AFC & NFC Championship Predictions
By Marlon 1/21/2012
New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers
Tom Brady has been here many times before and every time he has been here he has succeeded with a perfect 4-0 record in AFC Championship games. This game, however has a different feel from the others. This is a game that Baltimore really more...

NFL Divisional Predictions
By Marlon 1/14/2012
New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers
The record setting Saints offense has been performing at such a break neck pace leaving me to wonder if it will ever be stopped. The answer to that is not exactly. What will happen though is the elements and some old fashioned keep-a-way. more...

NFL Week 12 Predictions
By Marlon 11/23/2011
Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions
The Packers are as vulnerable as they will ever be going on the road on a short week against an upstart Lions team positioned perfectly to prove their legit contender status. Packers 33 Lions 28.
Miami Dolphins at Dallas Cowboys
Both teams are coming into the game on 3 game winning streaks. This should be a very interesting tilt with home field ultimately being the deciding factor. Dallas 24 Miami 13. more...

NFL Week 11 Predictions
By Marlon 11/17/2011
New York Jets at Denver Broncos

Around the NBA Lockout
By Ron Campbell 11/3/2011
I don't want to spend too much time talking about the NBA as I am totally disgusted by this lockout. More than anything this lockout is a slap in the face to the fans. The fans who stuck around during the NBA's drug era (1970-1981), the over expanded not that entertaining era (1990-1999), the 1999 lockout, the thug era more...

Miami Dolphins at New York Giants
The Dolphins have the same # of wins as % chance they have of beating the Giants this week. Giants 27 Dolphins 13.

My Rare View - NFL Season Week 7
By Marlon 10/26/2011

My Rare View - NFL Season Week 6
By Marlon 10/20/2011
1. The 1-5 Minnesota Vikings are terrible and a change at the QB position is long overdue. 2. Rookie QB Andy Dalton has led the surprising Bengals to 3 straight victories and a surprising 4-2 start, including 2-1 on the road more...

NFL Week 6 Predictions
By Marlon 10/15/2011
San Francisco 49ers at Detroit Lions
The Lions continue to fly high and are unbeaten after 5 weeks while San Francisco is coming off a 45 point win. This game can go either way and I think the Niners are for real. 49ers 28 Lions 24. more...

My Rare View - NFL Season Week 5
By Marlon 10/13/2011
1. It's Tebow time in Denver. The cult hero replaced Kyle Orton in the second half of Sunday's game against the Chargers and led a second half rally not seen in that city in over a decade. Of course they still lost but that is a given right? more...

NFL Week 5 Predictions
By Marlon 10/8/2011
Philadelphia Eagles at Buffalo Bills
Will the Eagles fall to 1-4, forcing them to play near flawless football for the rest of the season. No. Eagles 35 Bills 27.
Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers are banged up but after starting the season with 3 of 4 on the road, I think some home loving is in order. Pittsburgh 24 Titans 10. more...

My Rare View - NFL Season Week 4
By Marlon 10/5/2011
1. Megatron, Stafford and the rest of the Lions, OH MY! If these boys from Detroit keep it up they may just have a home playoff game and anything can happen from there.

2. The Colts dropped to 0-4 even though QB Curtis Painter completed an 87 yard touchdown pass Monday night against the Bucs, something Peyton Manning has NEVER done in his entire career more...

NFL Week 4 Predictions
By Marlon 9/30/2011
New Orleans Saints at Jacksonville Jaguars
The Saints are as dangerous an offensive unit as there is in the entire NFL. Going into their week 4 matchup against the Jags, they are tied for 2nd in the NFL averaging 34.7 points per game. N.O. 34 Jacksonville 24. more...

My Rare View - NFL Season Week 3
By Marlon 9/29/2011
1. The Vaunted "Dream Team" in Philadelphia lost their second game in a row and their starting QB was also injured for the second game in a row. Looks like things are not going to be as smooth in Philly as many predicted prior to the start of the season. more...

Around the NFL
By Harold 9/23/2011
The perception of a player can change from week to week or even game to game and that has been the case with Tony Romo this past week. After his horrendous week 1 miscue where he temporarily thought he was playing for the Jets and threw a great pass to Darrelle Reavis, the best thing that could have happened to him was breaking his ribs and puncturing his lungs. It sounds weird saying and typing it but just for the simple fact he did break his ribs and punctured more...

NFL Week 3 Predictions
By Marlon 9/23/2011
San Francisco 49ers at Cincinnati Bengals The Niners lost a heartbreaker last weekend to the Cowboys in overtime but should be able to bounce back nicely against the surprising 1-1 Bengals. Niners 28 Bengals 17. more...

My Rare View - NFL season Week 2
By Marlon 9/20/2011
When the Carolina Panthers game ended in a loss to the defending champion Green Bay Packers, Cam Newton became the first rookie in NFL history to pass for over 400 yards in his first two career starts and set an NFL record having passed for 854 yards combined in the first two games of the season. more...

NFL Week 2 Predictions
By Marlon 9/16/2011
The Jets were EXTREMELY fortunate to beat the Cowboys at home in week 1. They will not need nearly as much good luck to get by the Jags. New York 24 Jacksonville 10.more...

My Rare View - NFL season Week 1
By Marlon 9/14/2011
1. Denver Broncos fans better be careful what they wish for because they just might get it. It is always trendy for fans to campaign for the back-up QB when the starter is neither hot nor popular however Bronco fans have taken it to the extreme by chanting in unison for the teams 3rd string QB. Bronco nation please have a seat, take a deep breath and get in tune with reality. John Elway does not play any more and Tim Tebow is not his reincarnate.more...

2011 NFL SEASON PREVIEW
By Marlon 8/26/2011
Unlike the NBA, we KNOW we will have an upcoming NFL season. The NFLPA and the Owners reached an agreement last month to ensure that. The regular season kicks off on Thursday September 8th in Green Bay and it is shaping up to be one of the most competitive seasons ever. Besides the Packers, there are 6 other teams who will open the season with a starting QB who has won at least one Super Bowl (New England, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis (if Peyton can go), New York Giants, New Orleans and Pittsburgh). Ironically each of the last 4 Super Bowl LOSING QB's had all won a Super Bowl prior to losing (Brady 2008, Warner 2009, P. Manning 2010 & Big Ben 2011). Competition has never been this fierce more...
